After a major revamp of its great photo retouching app Snapseed, originally developed by the great team at Nik Software, Google is bringing a couple of new features to the app both for iOS and Android users which you will love : adding a text layer on your photos and resizing the images when sharing / saving them.
Snapseed 2.8 : add text to your photos
This is a must-have feature in all photo retouching apps nowadays and the least we can say is that Google is little bit late on this. But here it finally is and now, if you pay attention to the tool menu in the updated V2.8 version of Snapseed, you’ll see that you can add a text layer. You then may choose from a wide variety of typos and styles, tweak the color of the text layer and its opacity, then move it on the photo to position it exactly where you want, as well as resize it.
You now have a full array of choices to make your photos more engaging when you edit them directly from into Snapseed without having to add text in a dedicated app like Over for iOS.
Snapseed 2.8 : resize the images
If you go into the settings of Snapseed, you will now find a menu to either let as is or resize the images that you save, export or share. You may resize your photos from 800px wide to 4,000px wide. That is interesting to save storage space on your iOS device.
